  • ZiPhone - Unlock, Jailbreak, Activate, REPAIR your iPhone - NO DOWNGRADING REQUIRED!
    Zibri has released ZiPhone - an incredible tool for activating, jailbreaking, repairing, and unlocking all versions of iPhones (unlock only works on 1.1.2 and 1.1.3 OTB).

    Its incredibly easy to use, and both OS X and Windows versions are included in the download. Instructions from the readme:

    Connect a brand new phone to the dock.
    Run the program

    Well, you can also use a restored phone...
    Or a normal in use phone...
    Well... whatever !
    Windows download the app from the MMi downloads section (this version is packaged with the .exe gui), or if you're not an MMi member you can download it here or from MediaFire. Windows users you can get a gui here Copy to Ziphone folder and run. requirements : .Net framework 2.0 or above

    OS X download the app here, or if you're not an MMi member you can download it here.


    If you would like to compile the latest version the SVN is located: http://iphone-elite.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ZiPhone/

    Here's how to use the app:

    Tutorial for noobs:

    1. Put iPhone in Dock

    2. Copy all files under C:

    3. Start/Run --> write cmd --> Hit Enter

    4. Drag ziphone.exe into the cmd window and you will see this:

    C:ziphone.exe"

    5. type -j -a

    and it need to look like this:

    C:ziphone.exe" -j -a

    6. hit enter and follow directions! Directions looking like this:

    ZiPhone v1.0 by Zibri. http://zibree.blogspot.com
    Source code available at: http://www.iphone-elite.org

    Loading zibri.dat.
    Searching for iPhone...
    Please power off the iPhone, then hold the home button
    and connect to dock to enter recovery mode.
    Working...
    Please wait 45".
    Done!


    ( To put your iPhone in recovery mode, hold down sleep/wake + Home Button until you see the iTunes logo on your iPhone)

    7. Do the same thing with dragging ziphone.exe to cmd and write -u

    This looks like this:

    C:ziphone.exe" -u

    ZiPhone v1.0 by Zibri. http://zibree.blogspot.com
    Source code available at: http://www.iphone-elite.org

    Loading zibri.dat.
    Searching for iPhone...
    Working...
    Please wait 2'30".
    Done!
    I will have a better guide up soon in the Wiki, this is just a basic rewrite of a guide a user tossed up.

    Mad props to Zibri and the elite dev team for their incredible work on this!

    ******cash edit******

    This tool also can repair a phone with a "dead" baseband. To quote Zibri's blog

    To REPAIR a *DEAD* baseband, do THIS:

    Put the iphone in recovery mode (NOT DFU..normal recovery mode)

    Then run: ziphone -u

    And you will have back IMEI and WIFI.

    This procedure already worked on 3 phones.

      I have a 1.1.1 phone (was originally 1.0.2) that is jailbreaked and not unlocked. If i upgrade to 1.1.3 and use this, will it work properly? Does it mess with the baseband?

      Question:

      I'm on 1.1.1 jailbroken and unlocked. The phone is not 1.1.1 otb, when I got it, it had 1.0.2 on it. Either way, would the steps for me be to upgrade to 1.1.3 and then run this software to jailbreak and unlock? If not, can someone tell me what to do, please?

      Yes, the binary published earlier requires Leopard (I'm not sure why, maybe just the way it was compiled). I haven't tried the updated one published on zibri's blog though.

      not sure what OS you are using. On a mac, fugu is a great ftp program. for windows... look in the guides.

      install bsd subsystem and ssh on your iphone via installer then you need to SSH(using some kind of ftp program) to your iphone from your computer via wifi access your apps folder on the phone and drop the signal.app in the folder
      Thanks for the reply but sorry, you are writing a complete different language than what I speak - do not understand all these abbreviations etc. and completely lost. Is there an easy step by step guide somewhere (1,000 pages probably)...

      Hey,

      I hav a small question if anybody can help. I've installed Windows XP installed on Drive 'D' instead of 'C' so when I open command prompt it shows 'DDocuments & Settings'. So will this program work for me. Also do I need to have iTunes installed or a Wi-Fi connection as required in the original jailbreak method. BTW my iphone is 1.1.2 OTB.

      Thanx.

      Think I get some of it. The installer is the blue icon on the iPhone... But still not figured out how to download stuff to it. Btw I use the latest Mac OS and latest iTunes. Kenneth

      Worked great. Started with 1.0.2 and now am unlocked 1.1.3. Here are the steps I took.

      - Restored and updated to 1.1.3 in iTunes
      - Used this program to Activate and Jailbreak (the unlock feature does not work in the earlier iPhones)
      - Installed BSD
      - Installed and ran AnySim 1.3

      Thats it. Hope this helps.

      Here's a summary: 4.6 - use it to jailbreak, activate and unlock 1.1.2 or 1.1.3 (but end up with 04.02.13 at the end I believe?).

      3.9 - use it to jailbreak and activate - NOT TO UNLOCK. But once you are done, you can use AnySIM 1.3 to unlock 04.03.13 baseband. This has the advantage of resulting in 1.1.3 with the matching baseband, so google maps should work etc. The disadvantage is it is an extra step (oh noe!).

      Now that was positively brilliant! My 1.1.2 phone went mental during the installer upgrade to 1.1.3 leaving me in recovery. Let it go on and do its thing and then followed your little cheat sheet to nirvana...

      Thanks again for taking the time to post it.

      Anyone having problems installing BSD subsystem?

      I restored to 1.1.3 via iTunes, run ZiPhone and now I cannot install BSD subsystem.

      Any help?

      ok so I have gone through the steps 3 times now - i have a cleanish version of 1.1.3 installed - modem firmware 04.03.13_G - not sure on the bootloader

      But even though it goes through the motions and says done, my phone just comes back to the original state each time without installer.app - any ideas?

      Im at work - not connected to wifi with the latest version of itunes installed
